Memorial Day ~ 2012

This is the longest period of time I've been away from my Blog since I began in 2008.  Once we returned from Ohio, I was overwhelmed with things that needed taken care of.  I am still behind on many things and see no end in sight.  But, I could not let this day pass without saying a few words about Memorial Day.
Simply put, I am a proud American.  I still get teary-eyed when I hear anyone sing The Star Spangled Banner, and when I see a military person in uniform, I silently thank them for the service they provide.  It is hard to comprehend all the wars and all the lives lost because of those wars.  The turmoil never seems to end.  I took some time today to think about all those men and women who fought for our country and those who still do.  I can only hope that God is rewarding those who have died fighting for our great country.
I hope everyone who celebrated Memorial Day today with picnics, boating, swimming, and such, remembered the meaning of Memorial Day.

Remember to breathe...take it slow...accept what grateful in the moment...all the things I remind myself to do.

I have missed you, my friend.
